2 Kings 3:1-12

When King Joram went to war against Moab, he called on Jehoshaphat for help.  They were going about their plan, but then things got scary. It was only when they were in trouble that “Jehoshaphat asked, ‘Is there no prophet of the LORD here, through whom we may inquire of the LORD?'” (v. 11)

What about us?  Is God our first response or last resort?

It’s good to turn to God in times of trouble, but what things are going well?  This is especially challenging for those of us involved in ministry. Do we plan our events, write our messages and do our ministries in our own wisdom and strength?  Do we only call on God when we see that our own plans aren’t working?  Or do we, as we should, seek God’s guidance, strength and presence in our lives and ministries first?

What about you?  Is God your first response or last resort? 

What about me…?
